billion is finally the justice department's getting religion, i'm just not a buyer of that. $13 billion sounds like a lot of money, but to jpmorgan chase who over the past five years has made $75 billion, that net income, he doesn't want to part with it, believe me, but it's not a huge number. particularly if you were to look at what the cents on the dollar is of what they're paying to get out of these liabilities. you know, people who lost money in these mortgages, the people who lost their homes are, you know, the numbers are far larger than $13 billion. this is a number that has been struck as part of a deal that, you know, may or may not be agreeable to most of the parties at the table. but it's not a killer number. >> the wall street journal and others are saying that what the government is doing is a witch hunt. they're shaking down jpmorgan. >> there's no doubt that there was wrongdoing. they wouldn't be at the table negotiating if there was no wrongdoing. and it's just a matter of what price each party is willing to pay or receive. so, a shakedown to me would seem that jpmorgan

advantage or for religion or economic opportunity. this is a war against an alien life form that comes from another part of the galaxy and threatens life on earth. >> right. even though this is originally written as a young adult, the theme here is very much an adult one. is there something you would like to see as a takeaway for people? because it's kind of a thinking movie. >> it's a thinking movie but i'm not sure that i would like to pronounce a message for it because i think that kind of robs you of being able to participate. i think it's a great movie for young people and their parents to see together, because i think it will create -- the questions will be asked and, hopefully, in a family setting you might find some answers. it concerns things like the responsibilities of growing up and facing military training, bullying are a lot of the things that -- that you experience when you see this film. >> there's a line at one point in the movie and i don't want to give too much away, that talks about a theme i think leach parents may talk about with their ki⌝y it's not always whether yo
